Ingredients: Downtown building, Spider in a window macro view, and a feather from a pillow on my black briefcase. I don’t think this is quite what @challengehub had in mind at Instagram for the #ch_archedwindow challenge, but hey; I had fun, and challenges help develop our skills.

Here’s a macro shot I did a few days ago of a spider hanging out between a couple of bushes in my yard. I’m using a grayscale version in a montage that’s going to be part of a series later on, but just for fun I mixed it up with some color filters in Photoforge 2 using the in-app Pop Cam pak (well worth the purchase). It’s like having Hipstamatic effects you can apply at will to existing photos. I also used the forever-awesome Photojojo macro lens.

Thanks for taking a look – what do you think? Are spiders too creepy no matter what, or does some colorful editing add to their interest? Leave a comment!
